Al Aho

   16 January 2004, mid-afternoon

Just got back from a talk given by one of the big guys in the Computer Science community, Al Aho. (He has written a lot of important computer science texts, most notably the Dragon Book.) The talk was quite good. He discussed the state of software today, and talked about his research in to compilers and programming languages for quantum computers. I saw Yang and Phil, Nabeel, Ju-lian and Ryan at the talk. The room was packed. I’ve never been to such a busy talk.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
